Since we are all going to have to do much of our shopping online this year, it is time to go ahead and get those orders in. You can order the books below right from this post. And if you are going to go out shopping, hit up your local bookstore and help out a struggling business.
Here are some suggestions for those on your list:
Someone who is looking to come out of 2020 strong:
This short book by John C. Maxwell is a challenging tool for making sure that your life has purpose and intention. Each chapter ends with a writing prompt, so it would be fun to add a journal and pen to your gift,
Someone who has read everything:
The novels of Antoine Laurain that have been translated into English. These shorter, quirky novels are a bit of a hidden treasure, so chances are the person on your list who has read everything, hasn’t read these!
Your Friend that loves to travel and is missing it right now:
The Perveen Mistry novels will transport that person on your list straight to 1920s India. With a strong sense of place and a strong female lead, these novels offer a fun break from cabin fever.
For the family that reads together:
This new fairy tale from JK Rowling would make a great bed time read along book (ages 8 and up is suggested). It’s illustrated by children from all over the US and Cananda and a portion of the proceeds go to benefit communities affected by COVID.
For that hard to buy for tweenager:
The Wayside School series is a fun and zany look at school for the 7-13 year old reader. I always love finding good series for these readers. It always gives them a good reason to put down the Ipad and keep on reading.
Finally, for the kids in your family:
A shameless plug, this is the first in my Mac the Cardinal series. The Giving Bag is a heart warming story of a bird, his friend and the Jolly One!
